==============================

The Spitfire Mk XI was a reconnaissance aircraft

based on a combination of features from the marks VII, VIII and IX. The cameras, two vertically-mounted and sometimes an oblique mounted one, were installed in the fuselage behind the cockpit. The first Mk XIs were built in November 1942 and lasted until 1944 when they were phased out in favour of the Mk 19. The PR.XI was chronologically well ahead of the PR.X, being derived from the Mk IX. Powered by a Merlin 70, it could climb to 44,000 ft (13,420 m) and attain a speed of 422 mph (679 km/h). The only Mk IX derivative to have a retractable tailwheel, the PR.XI had the broad chord rudder; an enlarged oil tank like all PR variants; and the same leading-edge fuel tanks in the wings pioneered by the PR.IV, bringing the total fuel capacity up to 228 Imp gals (1,036 litres). Deliveries commenced in late 1942, early aircraft being powered by the Merlin 60 series engine.
The PR.Mk.XI variant, the last one of the Spitfires with Merlin engine, was the most important allied reconnaissance airplane in the European front, being used by the RAF and the USAF flying missions alone and unarmed at distant objectives like Berlin.
